Half day tour with a private local guide

Lipscani District (the oldest section of the city) This area consists of a maze of narrow streets. It became the most important trade center of Romania and also tell you the story of the 'birth' of Bucharest while seeing from the outside the first inn and the first princely courtyard of Dracula.
The Palace of the Parliament, the second largest administrative building after the Pentagon with more than 1000 rooms. We will visit also the interior of the building.
Revolution square -The square gained worldwide notoriety when TV stations around the world broadcasted Nicolae Ceausescu's - communist dictator of Romania, final moments in power. This was the place where Romania changed political regimes in 1989 from communism to democracy. The village museum- beautiful outdoor museum includes more than 300 houses representing the history of Romania's villages. We will walk through it.
